Hangry computer


In Taiwan there's a belief among a lot of people that electronics will only work if you place Kuai Kuai snacks near them. Therefore, if you see a small bag of snacks on a computer in Taiwan DO NOT TOUCH!

I have a similar theory: Public transportation runs on human life energy.
That's why you feel like crap after a long time you spend in a bus :stare:

Here we usually joke that computers and other electronics work because they contain smoke. If you let the smoke out, they stop working.

Nah, machines in the world works with smoke. Just think about it: If the smoke leave the machine, it stops working! :)

Some context from a Taiwanese. Kuai Kuai is a popular snack brand and it has this cheetos-puff like snack in different colour packaging.

In early days when computers and electronics weren't as reliable and could break down more easily, people put a green package of the snack on their computers in hope that they would run more smoothly because green means "green light" and "go". It is just a superstition that people still occasionally do.

The ghost in the machine gets angry if his snacks are removed.
